First detection of raspberry leaf blotch virus in red raspberry in Bulgaria.
Severe chlorotic mottling, yellow chlorotic spots and patches were observed on a red raspberry plantation near Smolyan (south Bulgaria). Many patches of dead plants suggested that aExpand
Spatial patterns of variation in the composition and structure of nematode communities in relation to different microhabitats: a case study of Quercus dalechampii Ten. forest
Abstract Variability in the spatial distribution of nematode communities in relation to the structural heterogeneity of the environment was studied in nine different microhabitats within a relativelyExpand
